What you'll learn in this history lesson:

Since the launch of Napster in 1999, there has been a massive transformation in how we create and consume media. This class charts the waves of change over the past two decades.
We’ll start by looking at the tools and technology that underpin the digital revolution. 

We’ll then trace what’s happened in four areas: music, print, moving image (tv and film) and the operating systems that run our devices. Along the way we’ll discuss the long tail, piracy, streaming, eBooks, YouTube stars and more. We’ll talk about the upstarts and the big winners; about what has been lost and what has been gained. 

Finally, we will talk about how 2018 is a tipping point for another accelerating wave of change in what we create, watch, read and hear.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
